Michael Owen offered escape to Athens, Man City to seal £50m bid for Tevez and Eto’o
The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies…
Michael Owen to Olympiakos
The Greek side have reportedly offered the charismatic striker a way of escaping from all the poeple pointing and laughing at him in England with a three-year-deal worth £50k-a-week in Athens
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Before tax, it’s not as much as the £60k-a-week Hull are offering, but the Government’s brilliant new 50 per cent tax laws will make the money go a lot further in Greece.
Samuel Eto’o and Carlos Tevez to Manchester City
The Daily Star believe the Citizens will bolster their attacking lineup with a £50m MEGABID for the man who plays for Barca and the man who plays for Kia Joorabchian.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: It is believed the Catalan giants have already accepted a £25m offer for the Cameroonian, and City will satiate his notorious wage greed with £250,000-a-week according to The Sun. Tevez, on the other hand, is said to have accepted a lowly £100,000k per week for the next five years.
Felipe Melo to Arsenal
Speaking to BBC Sport, Gilberto Silva has advised his Brazilian team mate to consider a move to The Emirates:
“We heard rumours and he asked me. I said it’s a fantastic club and if he’s interested he should go without thinking.”He is exactly what they need – a powerful player with quality. If they got him it would be great because he is a player they need at the moment.”
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Unfortunately, Arsenal’s transfer policy isn’t dictated by former players, so this is nothing more than a tenuous link at the moment.
